Carly Rae Jepsen-less Boy Scout Jamboree Gets 3 Doors Down To Perform Despite LGBT Inequities!

boy scout jamboree three doors down replaces carly rae jepsen train equal rights lgtb

The Boy Scouts of America made a lot of progress this past year, but, frankly, the group still hasn't done enough!

Carly Rae Jepsen and Train were so displeased with the organization's continued intolerance that she dropped out of the BSA's National Jamboree months ago, refusing to perform for them until total equality was reached.

Apparently, though, not every musician is as concerned with equal rights and the fate of the LGBT community.

3 Doors Down signed on to headline tomorrow's concert, regardless of the fact that the policy change on permitting gay troop members isn't going through until January and openly gay troop leaders continue to remain barred from volunteering for the foreseeable future.

The bands rep isn;t commenting, but we want to know why the Here Without You singers performs for a group that condones sexual orientation-based discrimination!? !

The Boy Scouts do good within many different communities, there is no denying that, but many of their policies are antiquated and exclusionary!!

We were proud of the way CRJ stood up for ALL of her fans earlier this year when the Call Me Maybe singer tweeted:

JWoww Is Going The Extra Distance To Support GLAAD!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayJwoww

jwoww gay pride march spirit day ambassador

We love all the love going around!

And there's an extra dosage today as it's being announced JWoww is making some moves to help support GLAAD!

After all the major events this week that are bringing much-deserved equality, we're always happy to hear others are all for it. And now, JWoww is stepping to the plate because she's joining LGBT advocates Shane Bitney Crone, Fallon Fox, and Jacob Rudolph at the NYC Pride March this Sunday.

Girlfriend has always been a big LGBT supporter, and we're glad to hear her actions match her words.

Not only that but JWoww has been named the first Spirit Day Ambassador of 2013!

Spirit Day is GLAAD's annual anti-bullying campaign and will be going down on October 17th this year. And with JWoww on board, we bet it's going to be bigger and better than ever!

Alec Baldwin Deletes Twitter In Wake Of Violent, Homophobic Rant! Find Out WHY!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayAlec BaldwinTwitter

alec baldwin deletes twitter toxic little queen rant hilaria

Well, that's one way to solve the problem!!

After a Daily Mail writer dissed his wife, Alec Baldwin tweeted super shady shade at the journalist, at one point referring to him as a "toxic little queen"!

The actor caught all sorts of hell for his closed-minded and unacceptably offensive comment, so he apologized to the LGBT community earlier today and just now he DELETED his Twitter account entirely!!!

It's true!!!

Instead of surgically removing his foot from his mouth, the dude just cut out his tongue!

If Alec is too hot blooded to think before he speaks

Josh Duggar Accepts Job With Anti-Gay Hate Group!

josh duggar accepts job with anti gay hate group

This is certainly disappointing news.

Josh Duggar, the eldest son of the super-sized Duggar Family from 19 Kids And Counting has accepted a job with the Family Research Council, an organization that has been called an anti-gay hate group by Southern Poverty Law Center.

The company as well as FRC President Tim Perkins have been very vocal towards the LGBT community over the years and they have even compared homosexuality to criminal activities.

GLAAD Spokesperson Wilson Cruz voiced his opinion on the move, saying:

We're GLAAD We Came!

Once again, we were thrilled to come out and support our former colleagues at GLAAD and the great work they do by attending the 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday.

It was a great evening of celebration and inspiration, and we are very grateful that we got to speak to the future of our movement at the Youth Media Awards being celebrated downstairs.

In addition to speaking out about equality, since it was 4/20 we wanted to stress to them how lame it is that young stars like Rihanna and Miley Cyrus glamorize drug use. We urged them to stay away from that and work hard!

It was also lovely catching up with old pals, like Beth Ditto, Brad Goreski and Trevor Donovan.

And it was fun to wear our new Ben Sherman jacket, H&M pants and our fave Antoine & Stanley shoes.

Check out a bunch more photos… after the jump!

Bill Clinton To Recieve GLAAD Honor! Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Charlize Theron To Present!

bill clinton glaad award

Is Bill Clinton an angel in disguise??!

Probably not, but he is our hero!!!

The former president will be honored with GLAAD's first ever Advocate for Change Award.

Good ole' Bill was chosen for the prestigious award because of his past and present advocacy for equal rights.

Let's just say he has gone above and BEYOND the call of duty for the LGBT community.

Not only was he the FIRST U.S. president to appoint ANY openly gay and lesbian people to government positions, but he appointed more than 150 of us!!!

Not to mention how he lobbied for marriage equality in New York and North Carolina, and that time he publicly call out the head honchos in the Supreme Court to abandon the Defense of Marriage Act.

GLAAD's Wilson Cruz explained:
